82 minutes of cutscenes? I don't know how long the other 2 were, but that seems really short on video. Hell even Uncharted 2 had about 95minutes of cutscenes and ingame footage alone. I figured you'd get tons. Mass usually has a ton of short cutscenes throughout the game

There were very few cutscenes in the first two, most of the story came from the speech sections.

u really have not played a single WRPG game.. R U???

zeal0us2478d ago

Guess either more action or time that would of been use for longer cut-scenes or more cut-scenes was put towards multiplayer. Oh well

Chnswdchldrn2478d ago

or maybe lazy ass devs cuttin corners

iamgoatman2478d ago

Or maybe that Mass Effect never had that many cut-scenes to begin with? Like PhantomTommy said above, ME has always relied more on it's speech options to drive the story instead of some scripted movies.

Bundi2478d ago

More gameplay than cutscenes, always a good thing.

PhantomTommy2478d ago

Can't believe you got disagrees, so people would rather put their controller down than to be told the story in an organic way like in Half-Life or Bioshock....

"Because SONY are awesome and don't need a price drop. . .right?
78% sales drop in it's first full week, thats a pretty steep drop. Funny thing is, most of the sony defenders on this site said that the media should wait until it was out a full week before reporing on low(er than 3DS) sales. Now that it's been out a week, the same people have new excuses.
PSU, did 3DS also drop to 72k second week? #1.1"

"I find this excuse hilarious, Christmas is for kids, 3DS is for kids so it will sell more. Next thing Easter, Thanksgiving, Valentine's, Independence Day, New Year's Day and Halloween will all be labelled kids days when 3DS mops the floor with VITA on those and so many other occasions #4.1"

"They are still about 4 billion in the red concerning PS3. That doesn't sound like they know exactly what they're doing. PS3 success is measured by the profit they make from it and so far it hasn't made enough to cover their costs.
On top of all that, SONY as a whole is on its 4th straight year of loss, as in no profit at all for the last 4 years, you'll forgive the rest of the world that isn't up SONY's @$$ like most of N4G is, for being sceptical. #1.9.1"

"inb4dantecryingaboutmed iaplota gainstsony Microsoft got alot of (deserved) grief for their proprietary Memory Units and HDD's but at least they packaged their Arcade consoles with 256 mb memory units that were pretty much enough to satisfy all the game saving needs a gamer could have.
You could play every single xbox 360 game at launch on an arcade without buying a hard drive.
What SONY have done here is just plain greedy, at least bundle a 2gb memory card with VITA. #2"

Its probably because he pissed some people off in the past with his comments. After all this is N4G.

C'mon man is that really necessary? :D

aPerson2478d ago


Go argue someplace else. That has nothing to do with this discussion

MasterCornholio2478d ago

More Kinky sex scenes? I do hope so.


pr0digyZA2478d ago

Brings up another point and that is does that time include alternative choices.

BABY-JEDI2478d ago

That's what I was thinking. 82 minutes of kinky alien sex scenes does seem a bit too long LoL
: P

Kran2478d ago

The thing is too, a lot of those cutscenes are the same with minor changes (depending on how your story goes)
